"Your Sacred Table"
adapted from a prayer by St. Francis de Sales

Divine Savior,
we come to Your sacred table to nourish ourselves,
     not with bread but with Yourself, true Bread of eternal life.

Help us daily to make a good and perfect meal of your divine nourishment. Let us be continually refreshed by the perfume of Your kindness and goodness.

May the Holy Spirit fill us with His Love. Meanwhile, let us prepare a place for this holy food by emptying our hearts. Amen.

Sermon Excerpt

Things God Unites
a sermon based on Mark 10:2-16
Rev. Randy Quinn

In the summer of 1985, I was a newly ordained Deacon in the United Methodist Church, living in a part of the world I’d never seen before; doing things I’d never done before.  That summer, for instance, I found myself consecrating the elements for my “first communion.”  That summer I also conducted my first funeral.  And then on August 31, I “did” my first wedding.

Larry and Mary were married in a small building that couldn’t possibly hold more than 50 people – well, maybe 100 if you opened the doors to the fellowship hall and put out enough chairs, but there weren’t that many chairs in the building!

Every person who attended the wedding was a family member – except the pianist, who was a High School student from one of the other churches I was serving at the time.  Some were family of the bride, some were family of the groom, including children and grandchildren from previous marriages.

It was my first wedding; it was his fifth and her fourth.  They had seven previous marriages between them that all ended in divorce.

They knew more about weddings than I did, and I found myself learning from them.  But while I hadn’t even met Ronda yet, I was convinced I knew more about marriage than they did, and I like to think they learned from me.

After that first experience, I started telling couples “I don’t do weddings.  I help start marriages.”  . . . Subscribers: click here for the full manuscript
